For properties within the abovementioned Local Government Areas, you can now easily determine whether a property is within a bushfire-prone area through the Risk Ready
website. The Risk Ready website identifies:
- Bushfire-Prone Areas – areas within which new use and development must be appropriately designed, located, serviced, and constructed to reduce the risk to life and property; and
- Bushfire Impact Areas – areas that may be impacted by smoke and embers but are not subject to planning or building requirements.
Published bushfire-prone area overlays can also be viewed through the LIST
website using the layer '
Tasmanian Interim Planning Scheme Overlay'.
TFS is working with Local Government to implement the remaining draft overlays within each Council’s planning scheme. When published, these overlays will appear on the Risk Ready and LIST websites.
